BL Education will work closely with Immersive Minds, and in particular with founder and director Stephen Reid, who has worked in digital education for the last 18 years, 12 of which he has specialised in Games-Based Learning. He has represented organisations such as Microsoft and BBC, and events such as BETT, ISTE, Minecon Insomnia, Minefaire and Minevention. Stephen will be a director of BL Education, alongside David Ciclitira and Andrew Smith, and will receive a 20% shareholding in BL Education in return for his services.
This exciting collaboration will enable BL Education to develop and enhance educational content for BRICKLIVE shows globally, starting at the recently announced BRICKLIVE Dallas event taking place at the end of January 2019, where Immersive Minds have been confirmed to run the ‘Coding Corner’.
Combining education with the digital age
Andrew Smith: Managing Director of Live Company Group Plc, said: ‘Education has been at the forefront of our agenda for the Company since its inception and so this partnership cements this goal. Combining education with the digital age will also further increase the demographic of BRICKLIVE, especially as we move into new markets in America and globally. With their experience in teaching digital education, using platforms such as Minecraft and LEGO, and working with reputable companies such as Microsoft, Immersive Minds is the ideal partner. Future plans include creating education programmes and lesson plans that we integrate in BRICKLIVE shows.’
